    Study: BFFs May Have Similar DNA Belinda Luscombe @luscombeland July 15, 2014


    Really close friends might be as genetically similar as fourth cousins


    Next time someone says “You would really like my friend, she’s just like you,” try to refrain from giving her the side eye. It turns out she might have some science to back her up. According to a new study from Yale University and the University of California at San Diego, good friends are often genetically similar, and can share as much as 1% of the same gene variants. In genetic terms, that’s a lot. As close as, say, fourth cousins.


    “This gives us a deeper accounting of the origins of friendship,” says Nicholas Christakis, professor of sociology, evolutionary biology, and medicine at Yale, who co-authored the study with James Fowler, professor of medical genetics and political science at UC San Diego. “Not only do we form ties with people superficially like ourselves, we form ties with people who are like us on a deep genetic level. They’re like our kin, though they’re not.”


    The study found that, oddly, close friends are often genetically similar in their sense of smell. But it also concluded that friendship may play a role in evolution. The genes that were shared by friends saw the most “evolutionary activity”, or have evolved the fastest over the past 30,000 years. Whether the friendship or the genetic similarity came first is up for debate. Do we seek out genetically similar friends or do our friendships and mating affect what genes get passed on


    “Human beings are one of the few species who form long-term, non-reproductive relationships with other members of our species,” says Fowler.

    Waitng is for the Birds...The Wait is Over..Time to fly to the Open Windows

    in Current Events

    Rev 12


     1) A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. 2 She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. 3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. 4 Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born. 5 She gave birth to a son, a male child, who “will rule all the nations with an iron scepter.”[a] And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne. 6 The woman fled into the wilderness to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.

    2016 NFL playoffs: Concerns, takeaways and possible foes for Arizona Cardinals

    in Football

    The Arizona Cardinals wrapped up their season on Sunday with an embarrassing 36-6 Week 17 loss at home to the Seattle Seahawks. It didn't hurt anything in the big picture and it didn't help Seattle. Arizona still is the number two seed and Seattle the number six seed. But with the ugly loss, is there reason to be concerned and were there any takeaways from the game?


    In this show, hosts Jess Root and Seth Cox go over how there isn't really much to take away from the game, except that Seattle needed and wanted the game more than the Cardinals. It was something for their psyche and their confidence against moving forward. 


    They pose the question and give their answer -- should Cardinals fans be more concerned moving forward in the playoffs about facing Seattle potentially?


    Then, looking ahead to the divisional round, they discuss the three possible opponents -- the Packers, Redskins and Vikings and discuss each team's strengths. They rank their confidence level against each team and talk about which team they would prefer to see next weekend. 


    Make sure you give the show a listen and head on over to Revenge of the Birds for more great Cardinals content.

    2016 NFL playoffs: Arizona Cardinals one step closer to Super Bowl

    in Football

    Oh, boy. The Arizona Cardinals came away with a thrilling 26-20 overtime playoff victory over the Green Bay Packers on Saturday. The win had a little bit of everything, from a Hail Mary, a tipped pass TD, a coin that didn't flip and Larry Fitzgerald lore. Hosts Jess Root and Seth Cox talk about all the storylines from the game -- playcalling, Carson Palmer's nerves, whether the Cardinals played well or not, the bye week and more. 


    They also look ahead to the game this weekend that determines who goes to the Super Bowl. The Carolina Panthers and Arizona Cardinals both want in. How can the Cardinals beat them? What matchups will matter?

    NFL Week 16 review: Cardinal destroy Packers, rest or no rest, Super Bowl hopes

    in Football

    The Arizona Cardinals have won nine straight ballgames after a 38-8 beatdown they put on the Green Bay Packers, sacking Green Bay quarterbacks nine times and scoring two defensive touchdowns. Now they are 13-2, they are NFC West champs and have locked up a playoff bye and already have their best regular season ever. 


    Hosts Jess Root and Seth Cox look back at the last two wins over the Eagles and Packers, in which they won by a combined score of 78-25. What stood out? They talk about the play of David Johnson and Michael Floyd, the loss of Tyrann Mathieu and how it will not crush the team, as well as the pass rush showing up. 


    More importantly, they discuss the rest or no rest issue for the Cardinals heaidng into their final week facing the Seattle Seahawks at home. 


    Looking ahead, what is the minimum expectation for the Cardinals? What will make the season a success? The hosts say if they don't at least make it to the Super Bowl, the season is incomplete and unfulfilled. 


    Listen in and give you takes over at Revenge of the Birds.

    2016 NFL playoffs: Wild Card reactions, Cardinals vs. Packers preview

    in Football

    The Arizona Cardinals had a bye week in the playoffs and got to sit back and wait and see who they would play. Wild Card weekend brought some surprises. After the dust settled and Blair Walsh's kick went wide left, combined with a Green Bay Packers team that got its mojo back, the Cardinals were set to host Green Bay again this weekend. 


    Hosts Jess and Seth react to the weekend of playoff football and delve into the matchup against the Packers again. What matchups matter, is there anything to Green Bay and their swagger? How will this game look the second time around with a healthy Packers team, albeit on short rest. 


    The Cardinals also made a roster move to replace an injured Alex Okafor and add veteran Jason Babin. The hosts give their take on the move and whether they are excited at all. 


    Lastly, they discuss the potential matchups in the NFC Championship game. Is it destiny that the Cardinals and Seahawks clash once more at University of Phoenix Stadium with everything at stake?

    Guest: Noelle Meade-Izzi

    in Culture

    This is a replay of our show with Noelle Meade-Izzi that originally aired on April 4, 2014.  Noelle is an entrepreneur, philanthropist, author, speaker, award-winning graphic designer and renowned Natu-journalist. Her book, The Hummingbird That Answered My Heart’s Calling, is a testament to the power of nature and its ability to teach, heal, and re-connect humans to their true human nature.  This gift book is filled with over 40 full-color photographs and a custom designed book cover and interior pages. To her delight, a segment on her experience with Artemis, the hummingbird, was featured in the United States Humane Society (USHS) publication, “All Animals.”  But Noelle’s commitment to nature goes well beyond her work as a Natu-journalist. She is leading a crusade to recognize and protect the four POWER POLLINATORS ---bees, birds, butterflies and bats.  As the Pollinator Queen, she is a special advocate for the pollinators, offering advice on how to build a hummingbird-friendly backyard habitant, ways to “give back” to the bee nation, methods for protecting and supporting these essential creatures that are critical to our food chain.  Noelle’s immediate focus is the bee population which has been decimated by a mysterious die-off not fully identified by scientists. Her goal is to help people see bees for the valued partners they are: harmonious, integrated, unified creatures working tirelessly for the greater good. She unceasingly works to educate as many adults and children as possible, using her company, Beenevolent® as a tool for funding more research; to serve and give back. Noelle perceives the loss of any aspect of nature a spiritual loss as well as a natural one. She spreads her message by Spiritual Pollination.
